FRSC deploys 1,500 personnel for Bayelsa, Kogi, and Imo governorship elections

In readiness for the off-cycle governorship elections in Imo, Kogi, and Bayelsa States, the Federal Road Safety Corps (FRSC) has mobilised 1,500 personnel and dispatched 35 vehicles, including tow trucks, to ensure the smooth conduct of the polls.


According to a statement by the Deputy Corps Marshal (DCM) and Corps Public Education Officer (CPEO), Bisi Kazeem, on Wednesday in Abuja, the FRSC Corps Marshal, Dauda Biu, has instructed the deployed operatives to collaborate effectively with the Nigeria Police Force (NPF), Independent National Electoral Commission (INEC), and other security agencies. Their primary focus will be on enforcing restrictions on vehicular movement during the elections scheduled for Saturday.


Biu emphasised that the Corps Operatives assigned to election coverage have additional responsibilities, such as clearing obstructions on the roads, conducting rescue operations in emergencies, and maintaining orderliness in polling booths.


“To ensure that the Corps plays an effective role in the elections, 1,500 personnel of the Corps have been deployed. 35 vehicles, including tow trucks and ambulances, have also been deployed to each of the respective states to strengthen enforcement of restrictions during the entire process of the election,” he stated.


Biu urged the deployed personnel to demonstrate the highest level of professionalism, ingenuity, and to avoid any actions that could lead to the abuse of the rights of voters. He called on the electorate to comply with all regulations, including restrictions, and expressed his wish for a peaceful, free, and fair election in the entire state.
